Description

Oakland Ballet was founded in 1965 by Ronn Guidi, an Oakland native, and gained international recognition through its historical reconstructions of ballets from the legendary Ballets Russes of Serge Diaghilev, mounting of classic works of Americana, and creation of innovative contemporary choreography. A cornerstone of Oakland Ballet Company’s nearly 50-year legacy has been our engagement with the community, from school visits by dancers to performances at Children’s Fairyland and Oakland’s Children’s Hospital. Through our partnership with the Oakland Unified School District and Community Access Tickets Service, Oakland Ballet Company has brought the gift of ballet and live music to thousands of community members who may not otherwise have access to live dance. In 2010, the Oakland Ballet Company celebrated the arrival of internationally acclaimed choreographer and director Graham Lustig as Artistic Director. Lustig’s career as a dancer, artistic director and choreographer parallels Oakland Ballet’s tradition of presenting historically vibrant work while championing new choreography.
